A Girl in the Himalayas – Reviews

Aug 07 2018

It’s my debut graphic novel and I was very excited to see how readers would react to certain characters and scenes in the story. See below some reviews of A Girl in the Himalayas:


“A Girl in the Himalayas is one of the greatest comics of the year.”

Rogues portal by Hafsa Alkhudairi


“There’s an enticing sense of reflection and maturity to this story about innocence saved and restored, but it’s also appropriate for readers of all ages.”

Eye on Comics by Don MacPherson


“I’m delighted to say that A Girl in the Himalayas stands up as something truly special that just about anyone will be able to find joy in reading.”

Fanbase Press by L. N. Conliff


“To me, it was a celebration of childhood innocence and human potential. It captures the way our environment can affect and influence us as we grow while making you think about the impact that you are having on the world around you.”

Comic Bastards by Sam King


“Vignolli’s story is full of the magic, adventure and intrigue that a younger audience will adore but it also has a depth to it that speaks of themes of community, family and finding one’s place in the world.”

Broken Frontier by Andy Oliver

“A Girl in The Himalayas is tangible proof that there’s still immeasurable kindness left on this problematic earth and in life, and there’s always time to do better.”

“Digging into the story for the briefest moment, you’re engrossed by this compelling world not unlike our own, but with a willingness to explore magic and wonder inherent to nature and childhood.”

Hannah Means-Shannon: Our young girl, Vijaya, has been through some terrible experiences and yet she remains open and hopeful about her future. Is this simply because she’s a resilient young child, or do you think she has qualities that make her unique among human beings?

Vignolli: What makes Vijaya resilient is the fact that she experienced a lot of love from her parents and Prasad. The certainty of being loved helped her to overcome traumatic experiences.

Roger Ash: How did you come up with the story of A Girl in the Himalayas?

Vignolli: A few years ago I finally got the chance to visit the Himalayas. One day me and my wife wanted to visit a temple half a day climb from the place where we were staying. We started our journey a bit late and the climb took us longer than expected. While we were climbing what was at times dangerously steep terrain, I realized how insignificant one human life is in the face of those majestic mountains. Nature is a tough and merciless teacher, she teaches us how to be alert and focused for example. A moment of distraction and we could fall off the cliff. But at the same time she is caring and comforting.

I imagined how a small girl who got lost in the mountains would feel and what kind of adventures she could have. A Girl in the Himalayas for me is a story of empowerment about a girl who wants to find her place in a world full of challenges and danger.
